We are very excited to announce updates to the Awair Omni Dashboard! The latest improvements are intended to simplify operations, provide greater insight into your Omni devices, and give you more control over how data is organized and shared within your organization. Below, we’ve detailed what to expect from the latest round of updates.
We are introducing a new hierarchy within the Dashboard which will help you manage, search, and locate your Omnis more efficiently.
Existing “Groups” in your Dashboard will be converted into “Locations.” Within each Location, you can now organize your devices by “Floor” (e.g. Lobby, Floor 1, Floor 2) to reflect how the devices are arranged within the building. This new organizational structure creates a direct association between Locations and Floors, allowing you to manage multiple Floors within a single Location.
In addition to this change, we also created a new filtering feature which allows you to find and manage your devices more effectively. The new Location and Floor concept can be used to filter devices within a search. In addition to using these new criteria, you can also filter results by "Status" (Connected or Disconnected) to gain insight into your devices’ operational status. To streamline this process, you can apply multiple filters to a single search.
In order to improve the utility and security of your Dashboard, we have expanded the level of access and permissions you can grant to a specific user. Current “Owners” and “Admins” will now become “Organization Managers.”
Organization Managers have the same scope of permissions as current Owners. They can create new Locations and invite new "Location Managers" and "Location Members." They also have the ability to edit device settings, control user permissions, and remove users from an Organization.
Within this new role hierarchy, Location Managers are a step below Organizational Managers. Location Managers have the same permissions, but these permissions are limited to their specific Location. They can upload, manage, and view devices within their designated Location. They can also add new Location Members and Location Managers for their Location.
Existing Dashboard Members will become Location Members. Location Members have read-only access for the specific Location(s) to which they are assigned.
Multiple levels of access can be assigned to a single user. For example, User A can be a Location Manager and/or Location Member in multiple locations.
The new “Device Management” section of your Dashboard provides more information about your Omnis.
In addition to these new features, we’ve added bulk editing capabilities. Simply select multiple devices to edit the LED display setting, Location, and Floor of the entire group or perform a bulk reboot or reset on devices on your WiFi network.
If you currently have multiple Organizations, we encourage you to consolidate them into one Organization with multiple Locations. This will create a more scalable organizational structure and will allow you to manage all your devices and users with greater ease, clarity, and efficiency.
We’re more than happy to help you consolidate your existing Organizations and answer any questions you may have. For additional support, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Let’s set the scene: You want better insight into the indoor environment so you can stay informed about the health of your building and, more importantly, the health of your employees. You are excited to finally have a continuous, real-time air quality monitoring solution at your fingertips where you can easily track trends over time and make improvements. But, have you considered who has access to this data besides you and how secure your systems are?
I think awareness is heightened, and in this economy there'll be a drop in demand for space, both for apartments and offices. With those two things together, I think that the offices with the premier health story will get the premium rent and get the tenants, and the offices with a lagging health story will lag.
Did you know that Awair’s indoor air quality (IAQ) monitors use state-of-the-art technology to measure air quality factors that impact your overall health and well-being? By paying attention to your IAQ, you can reduce allergy symptoms, improve your sleep quality, and feel better anywhere you spend time indoors. When air quality factors are collectively measured together, an Awair Score appears on the app ranging from 0 to 100. Zero represents poor air quality and 100 indicates healthy air quality.
